Repeat this exercise 5 times if possible. You will then have practiced a Kegel exercise. Gradually increase the number of exercises without straining your pelvic floor and anal muscles. Do not release too quickly; It involves contracting and relaxing the muscles slowly.

Medical specialists have developed a series of exercises for hemorrhoidal disorders that work the abdominal, buttock and anal region to optimize blood pressure in the anorectal area. Blood congestion in this field is the primary cause of inflammation of hemorrhoids. Some exercises are also based on Kegel exercises. These were particularly useful for people who have a sedentary job, for example, who sit for more than one hour in front of the computer.
In this case, it is recommended to take breaks of at least 5 minutes every hour and walk, or even better to do some exercises. Here are some exercises you can do at your job or when you are traveling. Do them twice a day for 10 to 15 minutes.
